In a surprise move, Audi has released information on the brand new 2017 Audi A5 ahead of its original release date, which was slated for November of this year. Based on the A4 Saloon model and debuting in a coupe form, the flashy A5 is turning heads around the globe. This sporty 2-door coupe has had a significant amount of thought into the exterior design, with a sharper nose and headlights that rest slightly higher. It also features a grille that is lower and wider than before, with a new and distinct muscular body that eludes to a sportier ride. Audi has reduced the weight of the new A5 by a total of 60 kilograms and added a slightly longer wheelbase, which means Audi enthusiasts can look forward to a more spacious interior, with plenty of room for cargo. Overall, the changes that the Audi A5 has seen this year are to align it to the new A4 model. One of the most significant upgrades to the A5 is the addition of Audi’s virtual cockpit system, which enables a high-resolution display using steering wheel buttons to show the driver objects that appear in front of them out on the road.Love At First Sight
One glance at the sculpted exterior of the brand new 2017 Audi A5 and you’ll realize that this is no typical coupe. Something significant has happened this year. Sculpted lateral bars running along the sides of the A5 give it a visual depth which is only enhanced by the brightness of the standard LED daytime running lights and xenon headlights. With multiple paint colours and wheel packages to choose from, you’re sure to find an A5 that’s as unique as you are. Step inside the A5’s interior and immerse yourself in luxurious soft leather seats. Wrap your hands around the 3-spoke leather-wrapped sports steering wheel and maximize your comfort levels with a little help from the automatic climate controls found throughout. Built with a 2.0-litre TFSI 4-cylinder engine, it delivers 220 HP and an extraordinary 258lb-ft of torque. A quattro permanent all-wheel drive system provides maximum efficiency out on the road, while keeping you in control at all times. Throughout the A5 coupe, you’ll take pride in the tiniest details, both inside and out, which make you love your new A5.
The 2017 A5 didn’t miss a beat when it comes to producing a vehicle with an elevated sense of technology.

On this media powerhouse, you’ll also find a stunning 7” colour display screen, 3D map visualization and a built-in hard drive that gives you plenty of room to store your favourite music and other files.
